I am a farmer and on my feet for long days. I had been suffering with ingrowing toe nails for over 12 months and had been putting off having any treatment for a while.. However when they got infected I booked in for a consultation with Sue at Alpine Podiatry Practice. From the word go Sue and the staff were great, very professional and put me at my ease straight away. Although I was nervous before the surgery, it was so much easier than I thought and yes the anaesthetic was a little uncomfortable but this was also due to the infection apparently. I had both sides of both big toe nails removed and after 3 weeks they are painless – I can walk normally and just wish I’d had the procedure done ages ago. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend anyone else with the same condition to have this surgical procedure – it has changed my life honestly, and not sure why I was so worried in the first place.
